    Can the Caricature artists do a drawing based off of printed photos. My guitar teacher would have loved to play with a famous singer who has passed. Could I bring photos of both and have a drawing done/

    Greetings to you, Mike, and welcome to planDisney!

    I see that you're setting up your itinerary for your upcoming trip to the Disneyland Resort. And what a wonderful and heartwarming gift idea for your guitar teacher! 

    I loved seeing your question come through because the caricature artists located right outside the exit to Pirates of the Caribbean and in the Downtown Disney District have created some of my favorite souvenirs that we have from our visits! I have a couple of cartoons of my son as he was growing up that perfectly captured that phase of his life (i.e. without any front teeth!) and it's a heartwarming memory for me whenever I see it.

    I know that the artists there can create a caricature from a photograph. In fact, that's how they sometimes operate when they have a queue of Guests requesting pictures. They took pictures of my son from different angles with their phones and were able to create a portrait from those that we picked up later in the day. Due to privacy concerns, I'm not sure if they will create a portrait of someone who is not present, but you could always try and explain your situation to them. I would recommend bringing multiple pictures of all individuals you would like in your commission (from different angles if possible). 

    If you have the Play Disney Parks app downloaded, did you know that you can get a complimentary story card as a souvenir from the nearby Fortune Red machine in the alcove by Pieces of Eight? This will be near Pirates of the Caribbean and is a great place to shop after having experienced my favorite attraction! You can receive one part of the story per day and I like to return every day during my visit to get another chapter. 

    Mike, I hope that this was helpful for you and good luck with getting your guitar teacher a heartfelt gift! If you have any more questions, please feel free to visit us again anytime. You're always welcome at planDisney.

    Wishing You a Great, Big, Beautiful Tomorrow!

Meet the Panelist: Al, California

Ahoy there from the heart of Steinbeck Country in central California! I've been visiting the Disneyland Resort since childhood and fell in love with the sense of absolute immersion that the Imagineers have achieved. My favorite attraction is Pirates of the Caribbean because where else can you go from a California day to an evening boat ride in the bayou with "salty old pirates"? I'm a veterinarian and an all-around Disney geek and enthusiast. I'd love to help you plan your next Disneyland trip! Learn More About Al
